Back to basics in minimalist cabin in Norway

The complexities of modern life will recede into the distance with a stay at Larsestølen in Skurdalen near to Norways oldest ski resort Geilo.

Historically the mountain cabin was where farmgirls would spend theirs summers, herding the farm animals during the warmer months. Today, old meets new as the small log-house has been upgraded with a modern style extension. The panoramic windows are offering splendid views of the surrounding wilderness.

Get back to life’s simple pleasures in this rustic off-grid mountain cabin.

There’s no electricity or running water. The cabin offer a basic kitchenette, dining area, wood stove and two single beds. The toilet is outside in a separate shed (head torch is recommended). There’s no road access and you can only reach the cabin by foot, on your skis or by a pre-booked snowmobile transport.

Local produce is available and can be pre-ordered as a food basket from a neighbour farm, Groven Fjellgård.

The peacefulness cannot be described but needs to be experienced.

The Larsestølen cabin is exclusively open for bookings to subscribers of the, Harvest Magazine, a natural lifestyle publication inspiring to slow down.

No electricity, no running water, no road access… Would you stay here?
